2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with creamy white head, Fabolous looks... however thin palate (watery) . Roasted notes - coffee mainly. Drinkable but too watery for my taste. OK, sometimes drink it at the local Irish pub!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, Nitro-type. 4.1%ABV. Almost black with a medium beige head. Aroma is mostly burned malt, with some coffee notes. Mellow mouthfeel, quite thin and with a flavor of burned malt and coffee. Dry, bitter finish, but not the typical hop-bitterness. (060327)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 Tap
Perfect tanned creamy head and ebony colour. Coffee aroma. Taste is coffee aroma and roasted, even smoked malt filtered through cream head. Finishing very long with bitter and roasted mouthfeel. (7/5/9/5/18 4.4)
Perfect Guinness outlook - benchmark for others. Quite weak chocolate aroma. Smooth, chocolaty, roasted and bitter, lacks a bit fullness of tapped version. (6/5/7/4/16 3.8)
Looks good. Aroma slightly skunked. Taste balanced roasted with hoppy finish. (4/5/6/3/13 3.1)

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 Very dark ruby-brown. Thick tan head. Yes, they drew a frickin’ shamrock in it. I remember when this beer wasn’t so damn cutesy. Aroma? On a nitrotap? Hardly any flavour, either. Very watery, just a hint of roast, nuts and maybe vanilla. Artificially thick body. Tart, watery finish. You can’t even call this dry anymore - they’ve cut back the hops and the malt sweetness is much more in evidence as a result. Downgrade from 2.7 overall.

Good beer, even better in a half & half. The legendary head is a delight to behold atop the smooth blackness below. Mild aroma belies the bitterness, though it isn’t as rounded as it should be.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours almost black with slight red mahogany edges. It always looks so cool when the grey-brown bubbles floculate when pouring, ending as the creamiest, most staying head in history. Aroma is, as always, mildly sweet, with a roasted edge. Flat and creamy mouthfeel, letting the beer glide down easily. Flavour begins sweet, then gets more roasted, and thus, bitter. Dry and creamy, sweet and roasted.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
on tap-pours a deep, rich, tan head that laces nicely. Color is black, with the white rivulets condensing. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is coffee. Nicely done, but not my taste.
